The Los Angeles Lakers made some fireworks this offseason, particularly with their acquisitions of Dennis Schroder and Montrezl Harrell. While there are some defensive concerns with both of the Sixth Man of the Year candidates, returning Lakers’ forward Markieff Morris doesn’t seem overly concerned about them, calling both players “dogs” during his media availability on Thursday:

You know you’re doing something write if Morris is the one calling you a “junkyard dog.” The midseason acquisition provided the Lakers with some much-needed toughness and versatility in the postseason and the Lakers will be hoping for much more of the same with Schroder and Harrell, as well as Wesley Matthews and Marc Gasol.

Morris also spoke at length about the Lakers’ ability to add new pieces to a championship roster and why he’s not worried about its effects on the chemistry they built throughout last season:

Morris has certainly taken up a bit of a leadership role behind LeBron James and Anthony Davis and that will surely help incorporate his new teammates. But he’s also right that when you have talents like James and Davis, there’s not really much else to worry about when it comes to getting players to fit into the environment. It will just be up to them to produce to the level the Lakers need.
